I only had a brief question about the BSOD image. As a student pursuing my associates, I have a final due pretty soon and was wondering if I could incorporate your BSOD image into my project. I do not intend to monetize from the image, I'm merely using it as an example. Thank you for your time reading my inquiry. Josh

    SuperUser is not Microsoft. – music2myear Mar 20 at 17:58
  • I understand that SuperUser is not Microsoft. However, this is where I found the best BSOD image without it being an actual photo taken from the camera. I ask because this is where I found the image and would like to use it with proper citing. Do I ask Microsoft instead? – Josh M Mar 20 at 18:03

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is asking for permission to use an image. This question is not about the Super User community. User contributions are licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 with attribution required. So you would only have to attribute the image source. – Ramhound Mar 20 at 18:55
  • Seems on-topic to me. We have adopted the license cited in @Ramhound's comment for user contributions, which includes images. This question can be constructively answered by directing the poster to that license. – Twisty Impersonator Mar 21 at 2:59
  • @TwistyImpersonator This site is not Microsoft. This question is off topic and a bit overly cautious at best. – JakeGould Mar 21 at 14:51
  • The question is overly ridiculous. A screenshot of the blue screen of death falls within fair use guidelines. Josh, but no disrespect but if you contact Microsoft they might just ignore your question or simply say “Fine, no problem…” – JakeGould Mar 21 at 14:51

SE has a pretty clear policy on content licencing - its creative commons, cc by-sa 3.0. So you can, if you attribute, and are ok with sharing the content with any changes.

For a school project it ought to be fine.
